American Express (U.S.) Membership Rewards Transfers To Hawaiian Now With 25% Bonus Through June 30, 2021

1 Comment

American Express Membership Rewards has made yet another points transfer promotion available to their U.S. based members, offering a 25% bonus on Membership Rewards transfers to Hawaiian Airlines.

This promotion is showing card accounts with Membership Rewards earning/redemption capability and the official expiration date is June 30, 2021.

Transferring Membership Rewards points from Amex to HawaiianMiles is usually 1:1 in increments of 1000 and during the promotional period members will benefit from the 1:1.25 ratio (25% bonus).

You can find the transfer option in your online Amex card account under Membership Rewards – Airline Transfers :

There are several opportunities to use HawaiianMiles and considering that Hawaii has now reopened to visitors from the continental U.S. definitely a good point to make a redemption in order to go to the islands.

In fact American Express in the U.S. has quite a few attractive points transfer bonuses going on right now, including the following for hotel partners:

  • Hilton Honors 40% Transfer Bonus
  • Marriott Bonvoy 40% Transfer Bonus

Those of us with U.S. based accounts are quite spoiled in that regard as there are almost always ample opportunities to offload membership Rewards Points at a good ratio which is good because many Amex products don’t have a great earning capability for points including the Platinum Card which I really like but whose earning ratio on anything but airfare is horrible (the worst of all charge cards).


If you’re planning a trip to Hawaii or can make the Hawaiian Airlines award chart work for you in any way it’ a good time to transfer Amex Membership Rewards with 25% bonus until the end of June.

I recommend to first check availability and not just transfer points without having a specific plan for how to use them.
